  • Using a venv with Neovim's Python LSP
    2 projects | | 5 Apr 2024
    I recently started coding with Neovim using kickstart.nvim as the template for my editor configuration. I downloaded the python-lsp-server package using Mason, but I was disappointed to discover that the IntelliSense on my third party dependencies didn't work. The LSP was resolving to my global Python installation, which did not have the packages from my virtual environment (venv) installed.
  • Do I need NeoVIM?
    11 projects | /r/neovim | 7 Dec 2023 This is an autocompletion engine This allows NeoVim to install parsing scripts so NeoVim can do things like code highlighting. Not strictly necessary, but allows you to access a repo of LSP, install them, and configure them for without you actively messing about in config files. Also not strictly necessary, but vastly simplifies LSP setup. This lets the above two plugins talk to each other more easily.

  • How do you enable semantic highlighting for Python?
    4 projects | /r/neovim | 7 Jul 2023
    I have pyright installed via mason which apparently support "semantic token highlighting" but have been having a hard time getting these colors to show up in a buffer. It seems Neovim has changed how it handles semantic highlighting a few times so there's still some conflicting information online. It's hard to know what's current and what's not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
